It's been exactly a week since I have posted. My room is taking shape and I hope to have it pretty well together by the end of the weekend. My purging will not be done by any means, but I will have a more workable setup and I have a place for a television and Directv receiver, yea!
I may never leave my room again!
Today my husband took me on a lunch date (a rarity due to our job schedules). We went to the restaurant where we had our first date, where we had lunch on our wedding day and where we have celebrated a number of anniversaries over the years. On our first date, I told him he had to pass the "Gretchen test". Gretchen was my 5 yo schnauzer who was a really great judge of character. Needless to say, DH passed with flying colors and we currently have 4 rescued schnauzers in our family. So, in memory of that date so long ago, I made my DH this card.
I used an MFT Claire Keay set, MFT dies, Nestabilities, SU! Punch, Swarovski crystals, a Teresa Collins rhinestone, DCWV cs and Basic Grey Boxer dp. Image is colored with Copics and paper-pieced. The pup is popped up with 3M tape. The sketch is from last week's MFT challenge.
I am entering the following challenges:
Mema's Crafts - anything goes with a winter/holiday theme
OOzak - winter vibes
Inky Impressions - lots of layers
Paper Pretties - favorite stamp set
Word Art Wednesday - encouraging uplifting sentiment
I know this does not look like a typical anniversary card, but it really fits us as we are not the typical couple. Dogs have played a big part in our relationship for all these years, so what would be better than a girl and her dog saying you had me at woof??? I know he will love it as he loves all things dog related.
Thanks for stopping by and for reading all my ramblings! It is so good to be back stamping again!
